Every season of project runway I don’t realize its started until about 8 episodes in.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen the 1st episode of any season.

However, I think I’ve caught most of the unconventional challenge episodes.

They may be called the Palace Guard, the City Guard, or the Patrol. Whatever the name, their purpose in any work of heroic fantasy is identical: it is, round about Chapter Three (or ten minutes into the film) to rush into the room, attack the hero one at a time, and be slaughtered. No one ever asks them if they want to. 
This book is dedicated to those fine men.

I do not currently live in a place were I can have a pet, but I want one.

I want a cat, but I’m not sure I should have one.

Current list of concerns:

cost, preventing cat from running out the door when I’m trying to get in, care of cat when I wish to travel, my odd work hours may confuse cat, preventing cat from destroying things.

Most of those things I can learn, but the issue of what to do when I want to go on a trip is the biggest issue.

There are people in my life who’d go feed the cat while I was away, but they’d prefer not to and wouldn’t always be able to. I’d have to have a plan for this before start looking for a cat.

Hired Pet Sitters- No.  This means I’m going to pay a stranger to enter my home unsupervised. I have too wide a paranoia streak for this. Even just thinking of which friends/relatives I’d ask makes me twitchy. There’s a few I’d trust automatically and a few who I probably should trust, but I watch too much crime drama.

Boarding- There are some local options, but it averages out to be about $60 for 3 days. So every trip would cost an extra $60.

Automatic feeders- If the cat doesn’t have food issues and won’t eat themselves into oblivion this is a viable option.  Unfortunately, a more cat knowledgeable friend informed me that a lot of rescued cats aren’t capable of regulating their rations.  There are automatic feeders that dispense precise amounts of food at specific increments, but that is a little problematic too. The ones that could go for 3 days are very expensive and even if I ignore price there’s always the possibility of the mechanics breaking while I’m away or cat getting itself stuck in something and being unable to eat and then die.

I’d probably go for the boarding option, but that ups how much I have to budget for having a cat.

I keep forgetting that working on art makes me feel better.

When I get in a mood of “everything is stupid” and “I should just sleep all day” at first I don’t go to drawing because. ..well im not even sure…but when I manage to sit and pick up a pencil anyway I feel so much better.

To anyone I might date in the future—

You don’t have to love the Discworld series.

You don’t have to like the Discworld series. (though that will make me a little sad)

You don’t even have to read any of the Discworld series. (though I will politely try to convince you to do so)

BUT

If I ever find detailed 1 star review of a Discworld book written by you I will start questioning if we should be together.

why?

1 start means “hated”. It doesn’t mean “not my thing”, “Didn’t care for it”, “Eh”, it means HATED.

Also, you took the time to write something to explain your hatred.

The series isn’t perfect. There are books in it I don’t care for. 

If you hate something I love a lot you probably don’t get me in a fundamental way.

Anyone else have something like this?
